South Carolina BBQ Pork Sliders


  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar, divided
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice (optional)

  • 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar

  • 24 small dinner rolls, sliced in half
  • hot sauce (optional)


  1. In a small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar, paprika, minced onion, chili powder, salt, garlic powder and allspice. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of this mixture into the bottom of a slow cooker. Rub remaining mixture over pork. Add vinegar and remaining brown sugar to slow cooker; stir to mix. Add pork.
  2. Cover and cook on low 8 to 10 hours until pork is fork-tender. Remove pork to cutting board and pull into shreds. Return to slow cooker; add green onions and toss to coat.
  3. Place about 1/4 cup of pork mixture onto each bun bottom. Add a sprinkle of hot sauce, if desired. Top with bun tops and serve immediately.


  • Use a slow-cooker liner to save on clean-up time (Reynolds makes them).
  • Liners also make sure your meat is sealed in & moist and they prevent burning.
  • Serve with cole slaw!
